SITE SUMMARIESSite: PAT-26A
Position: 21°27.242´N, 139°28.710´W
Water Depth: 5081 m (uncorrected)
Sediment Thickness: 201 m (0.254 s TWTT)
Target Drilling Depth: 201 m
Approved Maximum Penetration: 300 m
Seismic Coverage: EW9709 transit 14-13 CDP 3295
Objectives: The objectives of Site PAT-26 are to determine the:
Drilling Program: One APC/XCB to basement; one APC through the LPTM; and a second APC/XCB if time is available.
Logging and Downhole: Triple combo, MGT, and FMS-sonic.
Nature of Rock Anticipated: Soft sediments except perhaps some chert-chalk in basal layers. Basement is midocean ridge basalt.
